Personality disorder: People with a personality disorder is difficult to treat. A typical problem with them is that they complain about the health care system taking care of them and are unwilling to listen to recommendations. It's great you are asking for help but it should be understood that people with personality disorders take time to recognize the barriers they create to get themselves better,

DISORDER: I'm sorry you are having so much difficulty getting help. Please do not tell people you have a personality disorder. It's better not to self-diagnose. Just describe your symptoms and they will draw their own conclusions. Good luck.
